Due to popular demand, we have added a second week of Adventure Camp!
Ages 8-15 · July 16-22, 2017 & July 30-August 5, 2017
Adventure Camp is for kids who are incredibly passionate about spending time
with their friends at Sleep Away Camp every year, but are looking for a little more
adventure. This program is designed to give campers a new and exciting experience outside of The Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan while allowing them to maintain the friendships they have developed over the years.
Adventure Campers will stay in the cabins with their peers, participate in all the cabin group activities of the week, and have breakfast and dinners with their cabin.
Between breakfast and dinner is where the adventure lies. After breakfast, Adventure Campers will leave the camp site to explore the wonderful natural resources our beautiful state of Maine has to offer! Campers will spend their days learning to climb with professional guides, paddling and hiking our beautiful lakes and mountains, and will culminate their experience with a day at Sand Beach in “America’s Favorite Place”, Acadia National Park.
